Dr. Kim Coder, Professor of Community Forestry & Tree Health at the University of Georgia’s Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources, will discuss the history (biological & cultural) of live oak and the general scientific nomenclature and biology of the species.
“Live oak has played a great role in the founding of this nation and development of this three state region,” Dr. Coder says. “As the state tree of Georgia, live oak should be celebrated and recognized for its forests, unique individuals, and natural history. We still have large, old live oak trees hidden along field edges, in native forest patches, and along old lanes. We need to find and record these symbols of long-life and our historic past.”
Dave Edwards, Certified Arborist, Albany, GA will speak on his experience in caring for older live oaks, with case studies and time for questions.
3 CEUs will be available for ISA-certified arborists.
2.5 CFE hours available for SAF foresters. A certificate of professional development will be available for landscape architects and others.
